The Pythagorean Theorem states that in a right triangle with legs a and b and hypotenuse c, a2 + b2 = c2.

The converse of the Pythagorean theorem states that, if in a triangle with sides a, b, c,

a2 + b2 = c2

then the triangle is right and the angle opposite side c is a right angle.

Converse of Pythagorean Theorem?

The Pythagorean Theorem allows the mathematician to determine the value of the hypotenuse. The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem manipulates the formula so that the mathematician can use the values to determine that if the triangle is a right triangle.


What is the difference in the distance formula and the Pythagorean theorem?

The difference in the distance formula and the pythagorean theorem is that the distance formula finds the distance between two points while the pythagorean theorem usually finds the hypotenuse of a right triangle.


Which formula can be derived by using the Pythagorean theorem in the coordinate plane?

The Pythagorean theorem, which is the square root of the sum of the squares of two sides of a right triangle is equal to the hypotenuse, can be used to find the distance between two points. This means that it can also be used to find the equation of a line.

Use the Pythagorean theorem. A and B would be the difference in the X and Y coordinates, respectively. Solve for C and that's your distance. Pythagorean theorem: (A squared) + (B squared) = (C squared)
